today. >> obviously democrats would prefer a longer suspension of the debt ceiling which would provide additional economic security and stability as we continue to find ways to decrease the deficit. raising the possibility the united states could default on its obligations every few months is not an ideal way to run government but a short-term solution is better than another imminent manufactured crisis. >> reporter: there will be a whole bunch of amendments proposed today. one would offset every dollar of increased borrowing with spending reductions. another would add 120 day extension to any possible government shutdown threat in the future to give lawmakers to avoid type of bloated bills that get passed in the dead of night and increase the deficit, debt and spending. all the amendments are expected to be defeated and the measure is expected to pass and as for that member pay, folks shouldn't think lawmakers are making too much of a sacrifice. there is constitutional amendment says senators and house members have to be paid. their salaries would be delayed, not denied. jenna: do we
